I just turned 1 year old! Can you believe it? I am a sleek, happy boy! I got a new package of Nip Sticks since I obliterated the last ones. I chew them flat real fast, but I love em! I also got whitefish treat for my birthday dinner. I laid on the couch by Momma when she was watching the tv, and got all kinds of pets & kisses. Thank you to everyone that wished me greetings. It is amazing to look at that picture of me so sick & to see me now! Momma downloaded pics, but they are not on this computer, so when she uses that one we will all have some new pics to show off!
Momma will be making a vet appt for me, to have a 1 year old check up & to ask the vet about my leg again. She feels there is definitely something going on. I do not put weight on that leg normally, and I do this limp hop thing & hunch my back when I get up from sitting or laying down. Mom thought perhaps it might be a nerve pinch or nerve damage that would not show on an xray - since the one I had didn't show a whole lot wrong. It also seems like my wrist bends to the front on both legs, but moreso on that leg. I probably have some kind of genetec deformality. Momma just wants to make sure that if there is something that can be done, gets done to help me. My claws are real thick & wide too, and Momma will have the vet cut them. I just scream too much when she tries, and not like "I am annoyed" but like "I am in pain". I do not do this when she wipes my ears or brushes my teeth. The stupid insurance will not cover my foreleg, so who knows if it is my spine they may weasel out of that as it is connected. But I do not even put weight on it when I am sitting. I always hold it up, and you can see me almost "think" about how I set my foot down when I start to walk. Momma says a kitten should not be in pain like that to not even be able to run around & play. So as soon as they can fit me in I guess we will see.

Thanks again - even with all that, Momma says I am the sweetest kitty even though I am still a scaredy-butt. I am getting a little better. The dad pet me last nite while I was on the couch by Momma & I didn't even hiss or act scared! Maybe cuz I am all growed up?

Happy belated birthday Felix! glad to hear your birthday was good! we are purring and praying that your leg will be Ok and your Mom can get some answers from the vet...sometimes Moms just have to keep after the vet to keep looking for answers like she did with Zeke...finally our vet listened and she figured out he has asthma...so don't let your Mom give up until she is satisfied with what they find out.

hugs from all of us

Happy birthday! My first birthday present was Daddy adopting me. I'm glad you're making progress. I'm still very much a scardy-kitty, but I like having people around just as long as they don't pick me up. I hope you continue to make progress and that the vet can figure out what's wrong with your leg.
